A war of words has broken out between the present and former Chief Ministers of Bihar Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav ahead of by-polls in the state. It all started when RJD president Lalu Prasad commented that he will ensure the 'visarjan' (immersion) of
Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar in the October 30 by-elections. The JD(U) leader has since retorted that Lalu can get him shot but cannot do anything else.

The face-off between the two leaders started when Lalu reached Patna after a gap of three years and said he will campaign for the by-polls to Tarapur and Kusheshwar Asthan assembly seats.

"I will ensure the 'visarjan' of Nitish Kumar and the NDA in the state," Prasad said about the chief minister, his arch-rival whose JD(U) seeks to retain the two seats.

The RJD boss was scheduled to campaign for RJD candidates in the constituencies on Wednesday.

Asked to comment on Prasad's remark, Kumar said, "If he wants, he can get me shot. He cannot do anything else.... People have not forgotten the jungle raj in the state during his tenure. Let him say whatever he is saying. The NDA is winning both the seats."

The RJD which has the largest number of MLAs in the 243-strong assembly has been claiming that it will wrest the two seats from the ruling NDA and trigger a “khela” (upheaval) in the state's politics.
